Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together into a bowl.
Cut in butter until particles are the size of rice kernels.
Add a mixture of egg yolks, sour cream, and sugar, mixing until blended.
Knead until a smooth dough is formed.
Roll dough 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured surface: cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter.
With a sharp knife make a crisscross pattern on top of each; brush with egg white and sprinkle lightly with vanilla granulated sugar.
Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 400°F 5 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and bake about 14 minutes.
